As some of you may already know, this year we marked the beginning of our festive season with a trip to see The Snowman Tour Live! Hubs, the girls and I donned our glad rags and headed over to The Winding Wheel , Chesterfield to experience the classic Snowman, accompanied by a live orchestra. Also showing was A Donkey’s Tale. To say we were excited was an understatement!
Both of our girls are very excited for Christmas this year, they are at an age where they understand the traditions and can’t wait for Santa to arrive. I knew that this year they would be so taken with the animations on the big screen and with the live orchestra. The biggest especially was in absolute awe!
A Donkey’s Tale –
After a very entertaining introduction of each instruments in the orchestra, A Donkey’s Tale was projected onto the big screen. This is a story about a very lovable and musical donkey who dreams of making it big. It turns out that his talents lie in dancing rather than making music, which all materialises after an exciting journey that both girls were captivated by!
Last year we saw The Bear and the Piano which we all adored, so we were curious as to whether A Donkey’s Tale would hit the spot. It really did and the girls were still talking about the dancing donkey when we got home!
The Snowman –
I love The Snowman, so I was very excited to find out if the girls would love it as much now they’re a little older. From start to finish the girls were glued to the screen! They watched with amazement, they laughed and they cried. It was such a magical night that each and everyone of us loved!
I couldn’t have wished for a better way to begin our festive season. Especially as during the interval we were visited by The Snowman himself! The girls couldn’t believe their eyes as the life size Snowman made his way around the aisles, dancing and waving on his way. This went down an absolute treat!
For the second year in a row, we had a fantastic night at The Snowman Tour. The girls’ better understanding of the show and the time of year made our night so magical. We’ll definitely be back to see The Snowman next year, it really is the perfect way to kick off the Christmas season!
